Looking to buy my first bike.

Recommended Posts

What's everyone's preference on makes of bikes, as in what ones are the best to get? I use to watch and ride with my brother back when I was 8-10 yrs old. Any idea of a good size bike to buy? 5' 6" 145 lbs. one that I can grow into but not out grow as fast as I bought the thing?

Isn't that a bit tall of a bike for a short sob like me?

all full sized bikes are generally the same seat height, around 37 inches. But yes a KX500 is an incredibly powerful bike not suited for beginners.

Buy an inexpensive bike to get back in the woods. It's gonna' spend some time hitting the deck and so are you. KDX 200/220 make fine bikes for what you are looking for and it's an easy re-sell. That way you can figure out exactly what type of riding and what type of bike suites you for the long run. And don't forget gear. Make sure to budget for gear.
